Can you remember every dance you’ve ever danced?
The people on stage in Wallflower are trying to remember every one.
There are memories of dancing alone all night at a party; of whirling across the stage at the Paris Opera Ballet; of silently, slowly revolving with a new lover on a canal boat at night; of a repeated tic - a bodily habit that feels like dancing; of walking alongside their mother; of racing with a dog across a beach; of dizzily spinning children; of weeping and dancing; of hitting the mark for Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker...
The durational performance of Wallflower is a 5 hour dance marathon. Spanning a lifetime of music, fashion, politics, friendships, parties, love and loss, it’s a show about how dancing can shape our lives.
Every dance is added to an ever-expanding archive, a vast record of hundreds of memories exhibited alongside the performance that begins with dances from early rehearsals and always ends with the last dance.
Manchester-based Quarantine are a unique voice in British theatre, internationally acclaimed for their experiments with everyday life.
